This expression continues the aging process of the 4-year in 59-gallon, heavy charred, Garryana Oregon Oak barrels, brings a rich mouthful of aged Bourbon with brightness of a younger Bourbon. Complex and delicious.
A blend of 100% Straight Bourbon Whiskies aged entirely in limited production Oregon Oak Barrels, this hand-selected collection of straight bourbons from varying geographical locations represent the choicest hallmarks of that bourbon’s identity. Notes of fresh cut hay, tilled earth, wood, corn and spice come alive with the charred barrel adding a nuanced layer of rich Turkish tobacco and bitter chocolate that transforms while not deterring from the spirit’s individuality. Again, added to medium toasted barrel it becomes nutty with a little smoke on the fringe. This straight Bourbon is a crowd pleaser with dense grain, vanilla and dark roast coffee and the 8 year Kentucky Bourbon component is reminiscent of Islay Scotch with smoke and medicinal qualities. When all are pulled from the Oregon Oak and blended it is harmonious, unique and memorable. Bottled at 92 proof to allow the esters to shine. An ice cube is transformative.
